it, have themselves been retaliated and fired and are being harassed by the management of the school district. this is serious business. and this board has had many complaints, from these staff there, from the parents, and has ignored it. so what i'm saying is thereweñ?ñ?ñ has to be accountability by the superintendent and by this board about what is going oñ?ñ? on at that school. it's intolerable, it's unacceptable and it would happen at a white school in a wealthy district in san fravxhd[udd. but it is happening to martin luther king school. so we are taking up the campaign to educate public -- forpj5!t"d the district attorneyt÷ñ?ñ? gascón to3cñ?ñ? take action on this. thank you. >> good evening. i've been here before. i saw -- 1971 so as a 40-plus year employee ixyñ?ñ? am now fighting a dismissal charge --
